          Hello Irene,
          I like your work.
          Especially the one at the bottom right hand corner.
          I need some ideas for my visual journal.
          Care to share some of your ideas with me?

                i've done notebooks before that i've given away as gifts. one was a notebook i did from scratch - wasn't a ready notebook. i just put papers together and sewed and designed.

                quite tedious but loved it.

                the other one was a ready notebook from muji that i just did a cover for.

                thru the shopping experience at spotlight and art friend, i found out that some of the supplies at spotlight are more expensive than at art friend!

                for eg, glitter glue at spotlight is $2 more expensive than at art friend? yeap yeap...

                i love doing art & craft items but i go crazy when im at the supplies store... i just spend and spend and spend...

                hehehhe~
                Hello babe,

                          Curiouslearne: Thats a good idea! Theme wise, there's so many to choose! If i would to do, it would either be retro with bright colors, or just the classic type with pastel colors... But its totally up to you

                          I have only done a photo frame for my parents' wedding anniversary, its in the shape of a house and has a 3D roof, with our family photo on the top, and my parents below. There are two pillars on each side.

                            first you have to decide on the theme and then the colours and the style. it will be muh easier after that...

                              I made my friend a "Monster Book of Monsters"! (From Harry Potter Prisoner of Azkaban movie). What I did was to get brown fur from Art Friend (because it's already cut into A4++ size), an A4 ring binder file, 2 pairs of eyes from Spotlight (there's the sort used for stuffed toys that's not flat but actually hemispheric shape). I just glued the fur to the file, with 3 eyes on the front cover, and I made "fangs" using white felt cloth. We are both Harry Potter addicts.

                              And I like to make use of old magazines! Cut out the pretty pictures and stick them on covers of notebooks! Here's what I've done:
